Actually, the only thing RH does with Wine and rc.d scripts is to enable
the execution of Windows excutables through the binfmt_misc module, ie
you can then execute a Windows executable the same ways as a normal ELF
or script executable (or Java or whatever else you configured
binfmt_misc to handle).

The wineserver starts the same way as on other distros/OS, ie probably
by wine itself if it is not already running (or can't be connected to).
